Set your senses alive with a visit to Mornington Peninsula's Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens!
Home to Australia's oldest and most famous hedge maze, beautiful circular rose maze and the year-round flowering Lavender Labyrinth, Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens is a great destination for the whole family. Located a hop-skip-and-jump from Melbourne's city centre, the gardens will set your senses alive! The traditional hedge Maze is planted with more than 1000 cypress trees and thousands of metres of pathways. Now more than three metres high and two metres thick, the Maze keeper clips the hedges three times a year to keep it sculpted into a curvaceous challenge that will delight and inspire.
Other features of the gardens include Circular Rose Maze with 1200 fragrant roses and 25 acres of picturesque Woodland gardens. The beautiful Woodland canopy changes according to season. For example, in late winter you will see conifer and spruce trees that are normally hidden at other times of the year with a carpet of more than 2 million bluebells under planted. The children will be entertained running through the mazes, going in search of gnomes and fairies hiding in the gardens, and filling in the activity sheets so that they can be rewarded for their efforts!
Also nestled in the gardens is the Ashcombe Maze Café, which features Ashcombe's harvested lavender in a number of menu items all made on site. Here you can choose to sit back and relax with a cup of tea and lavender scones or even a scoop of lavender ice-cream!
